About the tall ship Sørlandet
A hundred years ago, on February 25, 1918, Marie and Oluf Andreas T. Skjelbred created an endowment: The funds would be used to build the Fullrigger Sørlandet . The operation of the ship and school activities were organized through Sørlandets Seilende Skoleskibs Institution. The full rigger was built in Kristiansand and launched in May 1927.

On her maiden voyage to Oslo in 1927, Sørlandet was inspected by King Haakon and Crown Prince Olav. Later in the same year, she set sail for London with 90 young trainees on board.

In 2015 the Foundation established its own boarding high school, A+ World Academy. The school is a university preparatory secondary school, and classes are taught onboard while the Ship sails to different locations around the world. 

She is the second oldest of three Norwegian tall ships, the “Great Trio of Norway”, which besides her includes Statsraad Lehmkuhl and Christian Radich.
